How do you maximize microneedling results? Our Philadelphia-area team at Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa sees many patients who want to enhance their skin’s appearance with microneedling but are curious about what they can do to get the most out of this therapy.

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that involves using tiny needles to create small punctures in the skin, each of which stimulates the body’s natural healing process and promotes collagen production. Microneedling is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

While microneedling can produce noticeable results on its own, there are several ways to boost its effectiveness. Let’s review some of the best ways to supercharge the benefits of microneedling. By taking these steps, you can achieve optimal results and enjoy healthy, glowing skin:

Use a Topical Serum or Cream

Using a topical serum or cream during or after a microneedling treatment can enhance the product’s benefits, because the ingredients penetrate the surface more effectively. Serums or creams that contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, or peptides can help to hydrate and nourish the skin, increase collagen production, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Incorporate LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to promote skin rejuvenation. Combining microneedling with LED light therapy can boost collagen production, reduce inflammation, and enhance the overall results of the treatment.

Avoid Sun Exposure

Direct sun exposure can damage the skin and compromise the results of microneedling. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours before and after a microneedling treatment. If you must go outside, be sure to wear a hat and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

Avoid Intense Exercise

Avoid heavy exercise that causes sweating for a few days after microneedling. Sweat can be irritating to the skin and bacteria can potentially enter the small wounds leading to an infection.

Follow a Skincare Regimen

Following a consistent skincare regimen can help to maintain the results of microneedling. A skincare regimen that includes cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing regularly can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
